Just in time for the new season of Highschool DxD !!

Also, WataMote seems more popular than I thought:

34. *39,450 *,*39,450 Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! Vol.4
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

It's always nice to see high school dxd selling.

This season should be good. Will Issei add to his harem? Will Issei continue to use dress break? Will there be lots of ecchi, action, and comedy?

Of course there will be and I am excited. I'll see you in the episode discussions symbv : )

But you are not comparing the equivalent, man. The figure for Fairy Tail is its first week of sales, and the figure for One Piece is the sales after many weeks of release already. You won't expect One Piece to keep selling at #1 week after week after week after week, will you???

Take note of the "Cumulative Sales" numbers please.

I think you need to take a closer look.

260k Sales for its week. While One Piece is still averaging a 140k ratio+ a week with 2.5M total sales.

DxD's sales are only for 3 days right as I remember it was released on the 20th? Quite low even with that. And it's a side story volume, though it's probably because Ishibumi is participating in the staff of the anime. That's still lazy though to pull off another side story volume for vol15 when vol13 was also the same. Oh well. Looking forward to the anime and reading the LN.

AW and Mahouka neck in neck still. So close. Insert obligatory "anime when?" question here for Mahouka.

And surprised to see this. I've only read the manga for this but I like it. I'm also reading the other LN by this writer, Hyouketsu Kyoukai no Eden and I also like it. It's pretty good to read and appreciate something that's under the radar by most people.

I'm not surprised about the LN part regarding High School DxD. I can't wait to read volume 15 in the future.

Why would you have expected it to sell more? It sold roughly the same amount as the previous volumes.

And what does it mean? It's just that I expected a bit more.

It is indeed out on the 20th, but did you forget there was a Limited Edition with the OAD which came out last month?

Toshokan Sensou almost completely out of the rankings.
Oreimo 12 takes the 4th spot of bestselling LN release of the year by recorded figures.
And Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei's recorded sales for volume 10 has overtaken that for vol 9

Nice.

Highschool DxD topping no1 is no surprise.
The Art of Shipping is no mere game. It can be small skirmishes to huge nation size wars.
Of course some will claim their ship is the BATTLESHIP but they all do. This is why battles occur because of factions fighting each other to justify their favourite ship.
And thus SHIP to SHIP combat occurs almost anytime even now.
Beware, Threading into the Shipping battlefield will be bloody.... What are you waiting for?

No Miniskirt Space Pirates volume 10? Odd... 9 ranked IIRC. Got my copy... Seems to be ranked quite high on amazon, came out on the 20th. Odd indeed.

Happy to see Chihayafuru 21 doing well.

Some dude in America continues to think his opinion has any impact or weight in terms of what Japan finds culturally significant in terms of their media.


Japan kind of likes One Piece, you've had since 1997 to come to terms with this.


As always I'm incredibly happy to see Space Bros doing well. It's such a well made story with probably some of the most realistically put together characters in a series that I've ever seen.

I thought it had but when I checked volume nine's release week back in November it was again me wondering why it didn't rank... seems my mind is on repeat...

Why did it get an anime then? Oh well, I'm glad it did and that it apparently didn't need an anime sales bump to get a movie either!

Nothing. They got more than enough material for a 2 cour. The series has a huge fanbase in Japan and overseas. It's also highly anticipated to get a sequel. Everything about a sequel smells profit and yet.....dunno man, it's the same sh*t with Baccano.

It's quite reassuring that highschool DXD is on top for now, keep going like that and season 3 won't be a dream anymore. As for durarara! and chrome shelled regios.. I wish whoever company that previously serialized them would be kindly enough to make a sequel, they deserve it :p

If that is the case, why did MajiKoi not sell? An over-generalized cliche comment only shows your ignorance.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Yeah, and I am surprised that you could conclude that if the plot is not good, then it must be the tits that sell as if there are no other reasons that could help sell the manga. Even worse you then jump to conclusion that this must be a general phenomenon about Japan. This is just the shallow thing that a troll will say, and you seem to be against trolls judging from your sig -- this only doubles the disappointment.

I never said the plot is great. But your jumping to conclusion (not once but twice) in your post is really ridiculous.

*sigh* do you even read the manga ?
Yeah, and I am surprised that you could conclude that if the plot is not good, then it must be the tits that sell as if there are no other reasons that could help sell the manga. Even worse you then jump to conclusion that this must be a general phenomenon about Japan. This is just the shallow thing that a troll will say, and you seem to be against trolls judging from your sig -- this only doubles the disappointment.

*don't you see all those rant comments on another forum and youtube ? pfffttt
I never said the plot is great. But your jumping to conclusion (not once but twice) in your post is really ridiculous.


what I meant about "tits" is the art, that is the only good thing about FT lately,
Mashima's drawing indeed is great, but dunno why his story is so fucked up on recent chapters...
I didn't mean this is the general phenomenon in entire Japan, it's just about the FT's fanbase in Japan, so many blind fanboy who doesn't even care about the story, as long as the art is good, they'll buy it, no matter how ridiculous it is
and I never said the entire plot is crap, it started out great but then went downhill after the tenrou arc....
